Chelsea stopper Willy Caballero has revealed his intention to return to Spain at the end of his contract. Caballero joined Chelsea in two seasons ago and has been largely the second choice goalkeeper at Stamford Bridge during his time.
The 38-year-old had spells at Elche and Malaga before moving to England and still has fond memories of his time in Spain.
Caballero had been linked with a move to the MLS with some reports claiming that some clubs in America were after his signature.
However, from his recent utterances, it appears that his mind is set on a return back to Spain
It is understood that Chelsea are satisfied with the player’s conduct since his arrival at the club and could extend his contract for another season.
However, given his age and his willingness to enjoy first choice football an exit looks the more likely option.The Blues are currently short of experienced goalies with Kepa and Caballero the only experienced first-team stoppers at the moment.
Chelsea have been linked with a number of backup goalkeepers and with the transfer ban set to expire in the summer, there could be new arrivals.
Chelsea have enjoyed a good start to the season under new manager Frank Lampard and sit fourth on the EPL table six points clear of fifth-placed Arsenal. Caballero is yet to make an EPL appearance but featured in the Carling Cup defeat to Manchester United.
The Argentina international enjoyed a good stint with Manchester City winning the league title and Carabao Cup during his time at the Etihad. He also won the Europa League with Chelsea last season.
